Smi2les would be proud...just assuming you are new, and not Chris.

Update from Fred of Hook fame: Smi2les appears to be out of the woods, and was very appreciative of the positive vibes from one and all.

Sorry for the hijack Vap!

Middle name of Cleveland glad to meet ya William. What this smi2les thing I aint got a clue. Anyhow I looked at some of the other letters people put on here and you seem to be a nice sort. I like the old new riders and such with that pedal steel guitar so i sort of wound up over here after sombody says there was free music to be listened to.

I used to think that the Greatful Dead boys were a bunch of rock and roll types with that hippie look and such but a buddy of mine was playing a real nice country tape in his truck one day and it turned out to be that Workingman's album. Even my buddys that only listen to George Straight and George Jones like that record! they dont admit it in public tho. Thats funny!

I thougth maybe there would be some real wierd stuff on this forum but it looks like most of you boys are fairly good Americans. A few seem a little limp risted but thats OK long as I dont rub up against em.

Nice to meet you

Grover

Hey Grove--like the dim bulb I be, I am always up for playing any newbie's straight man, skies included (though s/he wore out that welcome mat yesterday--even I have have my limits).

So, with respect to the post below by me, I may have wrongly assumed you were one of "us" regulars adopting a new handle for a bit of amusement. But, I'll take you at your word you're a newbie (a title given with affection--no, not that kind--and with no negative conOHtashuns at all...trust me, and just ask around here--I can be trusted).

With respect to Smi2les, he was the original "multiposter" using a variety of handles to post with ever increasing frequency. At the time it stirred up a fair bit of controversy, but in hindsight, he was defn not of the "party crashing, nothing but hate spewing negativity" troll nature that some have represented hereabouts the past few yrs. He's had some health issues, and I initially thought if you weren't one of us, you might be him, and back in action. That's all.

As for what you've witnessed of late, most all the folks here are fine upstanding sorts--better than most in the sense that they represent right and left, conservative and liberal, atheist, agnostic and believer, and most amazingly of all, TOLERANT of one another as long as the introduction among all concerned proceeds slowly, respectfully, and with affection and INTEREST in the DEAD at its core.

The only posters that find something altogether different in their reception are those that persist in posting OFF TOPIC, and personalize attacks relative to any number of NONDEAD issues without a) adding to the conversation about music, nor b) developing relationships with others posters that warrant acceptance by one and all as to the posting of personal, day to day matters of a nonDEAD sort. Like the way they all tolerate my regular drivel regarding military history, or politics or basketball...

Nobody gets ill treatment, by and large, unless they provoke it. I really do know for a fact that the majority of fellows here (and one certified gal) are in reality the biggest collection of tolerant softies you could ever imagine. They only bristle when they perceive a wrong done to other members, or deceitful behavior...

Soap box step off, to paraphrase Promontory Rider...

Frankly ,W.Tell ,you should read again EVERYTHING said on this GD forum by EVERYONE on september 11th and unplug your ears to spell it aloud ,then pretending your bullying buddies are are just a mellow bunch is mostly a gig joke ,even among deadheads . A douzaine of you here ,luckuly ,do not represente the real majority of what deadheads really are !Some people can never evolve because they can't stand the truths they'd have to face about themselves !So it's all over now ,baby blue !

Frankly, my dear skies, I don't give a damn.

I have to ask, though--why were you so mean to Grover? What did he do to you? You rejected him out of hand. Seemed you gave him just the reception you imagine you rec'd. Please go and read my responses to you when you first landed here. Then, please move on, k dude?

Seems you're calling the kettle black, eh?

Never heard such expression as "black kettle " so I don't have a clue as to the meaning ot it . Yes ,you certainly were a nice person at first and I really liked you then ! As for this bohemian whatever I never got the impression he ever was a real friend outside simplypretending being such to impress you ,maybe . Don't worry for your routines on this forum ,tho,tomorrw isalways another day for same old thing !You don't like hearing the time of day when it concerns you , W.Tell ?There isn't that much to tell ,so don't worry ,rest your little head with nice GD music !

U sure she's a girl?

Received the results of the tests yet?

I believe it was the "Lady from Carlisle" according to Hunter, not "Cardiff"?

Not wanting to pour ice-water on your molten wax (whatever)!

PS Cardiff City 0 - SuperGeordies (merely taking a brief respite in the Championship) 1
